The journey of a 1000 miles begins with a single step

Being aware of what is happening right now without wishing it were different

“Mindfulness is simply being aware of what is happening right now without wishing it were different; enjoying the pleasant without holding on when it changes (which it will); being with the unpleasant without fearing it will always be this way (which it won’t).”

~ James Baraz ~
